Deep South is a hard driving band based in Helena Arkansas. It's hard to put a label on Deep South. They are steeped in Blues, Southern Rock, and Classic Country. Deep South was formed in 2002. The line-up consists of Jason Herron (Guitar & Vocals), Monte McIntosh (Bass & Vocals), Tommy Ray Gatlin (Drums), and Doug Wilhite (Guitar & Vocals). The band plays a wide range of great cover songs from such artists as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Johnson, CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Waylon Jennings, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, as well as many other artists. They also perform originals such as "65 South", "Rusted Chains", "Reasons" and others yet to come.

Deep South plays all over the Arkansas Delta. From the Cotton Club in Brinkley, to the Sandbar at Pendleton and everywhere in between. They have played the King Biscuit and Wild Hog Festivals in Helena and play many benefits and charitable causes in the area.

All 4 of the members bring a unique contribution to the band. Jason handles most of the country singing while Doug does most of the Rock and Blues tunes. Monte is a solid bass player that is very versatile, and Tommy Ray lays down as good a drum beat as you can find...solid to say the least! They all come together to form a powerful force that leaves audiences applauding for more.
